Learn Everything You Can About Marathon Training

Read and learn as much as you can about marathon training. In addition to the large number of books on the topic, monthly magazines such as Runner's World frequently feature articles about marathon training and racing. Search the web for credible sites addressing the marathon.

Additionally, ask others who have previously run marathons for their advice. Join a running club or an organization that promotes marathon training and racing. With so much information and training philosophies available for you to consider, assimilate all the data and find a reputable program that you feel both comfortable with and that meets your needs/goals.

Finally, it is very important to consult with your coach on a regular basis so that your training program can be modified when necessary due to injury and/or fatigue.
